What is your favorite photography magazine?

I've let all of my subscriptions expire but was thinking about buying myself a holiday gift. Suggestions?...

I guess no one at FM subscribes to any photography magazines. There must be ~some~ periodical that people like??

Aperture, but it costs a fortune. It only comes out 4 times a year and the quality of reproduction is outstanding. Of the more popular priced publications, I believe Outdoor Photographer to have the best content, but it all depends what you are into.

I got a deal on popular photography (a few bucks), which is only okay. Seems more like one giant ad which I suppose we can thank the internet for. Im not sure I could honestly recommend it.

I read Photo District News every month. It's more business than hardware or technique oriented and aimed more at commercial photographers than wedding/portrait folks or non-pros.

B&W, it is an amazing magazine, I really miis not finding it in the UK though


They also have another one named colour but I never got my hands on it.

There are a few others available here in the UK. Like aperture and such, but sometimes they border too much into "nouveau photography" which I don't enjoy.

Of the art+technical magazines, I'd give it hands down to BJP, to which I do subscribe..

What about N-Photo? A dedicated Nikon publication. Kind of pricey as well. I pick one up at Barnes and Noble every once in awhile.

I don't subscribe to any photography magazines per se. I do receive Photoshop User from NAPP. The web has more information and news on photography and photo equipment than I can keep up with.
